Sail Away With Me Nautical Cards

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the last weekend in July!! Ugh - almost August already. It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have some nautical-themed cards to share with you today featuring dies from the June release :)


I used papers from Graphic 45's By The Sea collection. A Sweet Wordlet Happy and Sweet Wordlet Birthday were used for the sentiment. A Whispers Life Preserver Border was used along the bottom, with steel brads used to anchor them to the paper.


A Whispers Message in a Bottle die was inked Salty Ocean with a touch of Mowed Grass Distress Inks for a sea glass look and then covered with crackle medium. Once it dried, Walnut Distress Ink was used to highlight the cracks. The stopper was cut from cork paper. The message was cut with parchment paper that was crumpled and then inked for some texture. 


This card used all of the same dies: Sweet Wordlet Happy, Sweet Wordlet Birthday, Whispers Life Preserver Border and Whispers Message in a Bottle.


This one uses the same Whispers Life Preserver Border and Whispers Message in a Bottle, but the sentiment is from the Sail Away Stamp Set.


I have a very busy weekend planned so I may be late in visiting you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Your card designs are just fabulous! Wow, you have been a busy girl! I wish I had more time in my craft room these days but for now the little ones are right up there for my attention, lol! They are only little once so I will take advantage of that!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend and it doesn't get to warm! It is suppose to be mid 80's with high humidity~ I am sure I will either want to be in the air conditioning or at the lake.
Take care,

Some fabulous die shapes on this one, and how brilliant to use the cork with the bottle top dies. Love the crackling on the 'message in a bottle'. That's a product I've not tried with card craft as yet. The papers are gorgeous, and enhance these new dies so perfectly. Love that rope die border and each card simply showcases the new dies so nicely. More for my wish list! Well done Miss Lisa. Have a great wkend, and TFS
